Crafty Corvids east of the crest

Friday 6:00 AM-11:00 AM
Trip# 207: Crafty Corvids east of the crest
Tags: low elevation < 8,000' multiple locations
Description: Jays, magpies, nutcrackers, and ravens are the Eastside's intellectual avian troublemakers and problem solvers. These Corvids are known for their spatial memory, complex social interactions, and their elusiveness in the Mono Basin (well, some of them). On this field trip we will explore the habitats and natural history of as many of the local Corvids as possible, with a focus on finding Pinyon Jay and Woodhouse's Scrub-Jay in the Rancheria Gulch area. (est. driving miles: 40; hiking difficulty: easy)
